Chocolate Amnesia Cake – We Should Cocoa #37

Well my party piece for We Should Cocoa‘s third birthday is a real showstopper. It was so good, it stopped me in my tracks and knocked all sense out of me. As a result, I stupidly didn’t write the recipe down. Now a couple of weeks down the line, when I assumed all I had to do was put a few finishing touches to the post, I find I don’t have one and cannot remember how I made the cake. More importantly, I can’t remember what I put in it. This is really annoying as I do recall it was a particularly good one and I’d like to be able to repeat it. Note to self: pay attention and write recipes down immediately.

Chocolate Heart Cakes

The cake was a commission and a heart shape was chosen. As it was meant for a tea time treat, I was keen to use one of these Afternoon Tea Chocolates.

Stars for Celebrataion

To ensure I got to try some, I took the precaution of baking a second small rectangular one for us. This one was to celebrate We Should Cocoa’s third birthday. The cakes were of the sandwich variety and I filled and covered them with some sort of ganache.

The cake itself was moist and chocolatey, but the whipped ganache filling and covering was sublime. I do remember it had lots of chocolate in it and I beat it for ages so it was rich, but light and airy, almost mousse like.

    What a lovely looking cake. I cannot tell you how many intended blog posts I have had only to find I cannot remember exactly what I did. I will never learn. Happy birthday WSC.

    Two lovely cakes !! It’s such a pity you can’t remember how you made them !!
    This post made me chuckle. My husband does the same thing. He tends to cook adding a dash of this and a sprinkle of that as he goes along. Mostly the end result is nice but occasionally it’s delicious but when asked what he put in it he can never remember !!

    I hate that – it always happens with a great cake – looks like a beautiful cake

    That is so cruel – show us a gorgeous looking cake and then tell us we can’t make it 🙂 WSC is one of my favourite challenges so a big Happy Birthday and may you have many more.

    Oh, the joys of cooking for others and setting aside a bit for the home front! This does look moist and fluffy, my dear! I’d have been happy to be invited to that tea party!

    Wow, a chocolate cake so deliciously powerful that it causes amnesia! Your ganache looks/sounds heavenly.

    If i was going to suffer from amnesia, I would want it to be because of cake. The decorations are so pretty, love the stars and the shimmery gold lustre dust!

    A fab looking cake. I sooo often suffer from this malaise. I often forget what ingredients I used, or how much exactly.

    Wonderful cake. I completely understand the forgetting. I’ve forgotten so many recipes in the past. At least, I think I have. I can’t really remember.

    What a bummer. I “don’t” have a recipe just like it that got RAVE reviews, but no re~bake. Damn, it was good too.

      I never did learn my lesson and this keeps happening to me. I always have good intentions, but sometimes life just gets in the way.
